Mission Road Antique Mall, where I have my antique booth, was built on Woolford Farms, the home of the 1938 Kentucky Derby winner, Lawrin. Every year on race day, the antique mall hosts a big open house party as a tribute to Lawrin.
Dealers go all out with horse theme displays. This one belongs to my friend Carol Barta- also known as Carol Jean the Garage Sale Queen. I've posted about Carol before- she's had an extensive career in film- everything from a U2 video to a movie called "Bloodthirsty Cannibal Demons".
This is a French horse in the booth of my Miss Frenchie's friends Gwen & Teri.
Mint Juleps are the traditional Kentucky Derby drink, but I don't know how to make them, so I served Peppermint Patties in my booth.
But if you looked upstairs, you could find the real thing.
I couldn't resist another picture of dolls. If you saw my last post with the picture of the sweet dolls, you probably think its terrible that I'm making one of those "nice" dolls hang out with these delinquent dolls.
But the delinquent dolls have good pedigrees. The one on the left is tin - I believe she's called a Minerva doll and is from Germany. The doll on the right is NOT a transvestite as one friend suggested. She's a French boudoir doll who's in need of a little makeover.
Here are a few more pictures of some treasures that caught my eye.
